We just found a new version of Google Play Store making rounds on internet and thought it’s worth sharing with you guys. The new Google Play app’s version is 3.5.16, the last one being 3.5.15.

Yep, not a big update clearly, going by the change in version number (just an addition of and it’s being said that it basically fixes problems with purchased apps not appearing under the My Apps section for many users. I you had any such problem with the earlier Play Store app, do try this.

How to Install Google Play 3.5.16

One can download the APK of Google Play v3.5.16 and install it like any other app. You don’t need root, ADB or anything, just download the Google Play’s APK file from step 1 below and transfer it to your phone’s SD Card and then use a file manager to browse to it and install. (Don’t forget select the “Unknown sources” check box under applications settings before that so that you’re able to install apps manually.)

For those pretty new on android scene, first of all welcome to android world, and check out the detailed procedure below on how to install Play Store’s using its APK:

  1. Download Google Play 3.5.16 APK file.
  2. If you downloaded it on PC, transfer it to phone.
  3. You’ll need a file manager to browse through SD Card. If you don’t have one already, use this file manager (install for free from your current market app, which will soon be Google Play Store App.

    I can’ use google play market.It said me “Authentication is required.You need to sign in to your Google Account.” So what shout i do?I have already sign in my google account in google.

    1. Kapil says: Reply

      I guess you haven’t, otherwise it wouldn’t ask. Try again, go to settings – accounts and sync and setup your account from there.

      1. Layohe says: Reply

         I have already Sync my account in my phone.But It’s still said Authentication is required. How can I do? I need to authenticate my account.

      What android OS version you have. Check that in settings – about phone. I think one needs to have Android 2.2 or above on the android device to be able to install the Google Play v3.5.16.

    Hi. I have a Kindle Fire and would love to access Google Play for more apps not offered by Amazon. My K-Fire is not rooted, so I sideloaded the app. It installed fine. It asked me to set up an account when I launched. I select YES but nothing happens. I know the K-fire is not listed on the Google Play page, but was hoping a sideload would work. Your thoughts?

    1. Kapil says: Reply

      Try another version of Google Play then, like 3.5.15, or an older market 3.4.6. Search for both of them on our site to get link and guide.

    when i install google play it was installed , but when I open the app it says google play has stopped working…. this android is 4.0.3……

    1. Kapil says: Reply

      Go to settings – apps – ALL – scroll down and tap on Google Play Store, then do clear data. I think this will fix it.

      1. Unfortunately it doesn’t 🙁
        I installed CM7.2 on O2x and I’m having the same problem.
        I noticed that no google app is installed. Maybe installing an apk pakage would solve?

    I nearly did everything offered in all google searches. nothing works successfully for google play to work in HCL ME U1.
    Installing Android SDK and running ADB shell etc. also sometime does not allow file to be copied to system/app file and it’s very tedious thing if you are not familiar with java and linux commands.
    There seems to be some restriction by HCL in startup for disabling google play.
    following is the option which worked for me and very easy and using which so fart I have installed about 100 applications form google play and using my HCL ME U1 without any problem
    1) Install JDK in PC. You may also require HCL ME connect for drivers of HCL U1.
    2) Install Android commander (PC program. download and install from net) (
    3) using android commander Copy android apk file in system/app folder. (get it from internet also copy the same apk to SD card folder.
    4)Now when you restart tab it read as ‘android upgrading’ , but soon yo will get message “Unfortunately google play stopped working”.then try open google play it will show an error “unfortunately google stopped working” again
    6) Now go to you SD card where you have google play apk
    7) Double tap on that and install google play. will give message that you are replacing main application etc. say ok.
    8) Now google play will work/download/install any application from marketplace. now google play will work like anything.
    9)the moment you shutdown or reboot tab you will start getting “Unfortunately google play stopped working” message again
    10) So whenever you want to use google play double tap and install google play from sd card. for that time being it will work until you reboot or shutdown and start.
    so use that way it hardly takes 5-6 seconds to install google play apk from sdcard whenever you start tab.
    PLEASE NOTE it is very important that to have android.apk in root of system/app folder. without that it will not work.
    — What I feel is that HCL has made some restriction by disabling something in startup. Anyway it takes only 5 seconds to install google play apk from sdcard. and for that time it works just pefect. i tried all other way but this is the only way it works.

    I was having the same problem that many of you are having but i found out that if you are missing your google play, you should download the “gapps” zip and install it in your recovery. Search “gapps” on google.

    I downloaded the latest version on Samsung Galaxy S I9000. But it is not working. every time I try to open the app a message appears “the app google play has stopped unexpectedly.Please try again”

    Please help me with this problem. I need Google Play on my phone in order to install latest version of WhatsApp.

    I did this on my impression i7 because their app market don’t offer near as many apps as Google play, first i downloaded the latest version on my pc and copied it to the tablet and for some reason it didn’t work so i downloaded the oldest version and follow this directions and it seems to work just fine, maybe it’ll update later. Try the oldest version before the updates of Google play if the updated version don’t work on your tablet.
